Bedazzled Leaves

In my efforts to extend fall in Chicago into November, we made beautiful leaves in our Art + Music Class! Hopefully, the winter will not come too quickly -- I am already shivering in my boots! Brrrrr! I actually laminated the leaves from class to give them a shiny finish, but they still look great on their own if you don't have a laminating machine handy! Have fun making beautiful fall leaves!

  • Feathers
  • Cut up tissue paper squares
  • Sequins
  • Orange paint
  • Elmer's glue
  • Paintbrush
  • White construction paper or watercolor paper
  • Scissors

  1. Cut out a leaf shape out of white construction paper. 
  2. Mix half orange paint and half Elmer's Glue together. 
  3. Cover leaf with paint mixture. 
  4. Add tissue, sequins, and glitter. 
  5. Let dry.
